Fracture Symposium at the SES Annual Technical Conference

Ravi-Chandar's picture

Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce a mini-symposium on Fracture Mechanics at the 52nd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science, to be held at the Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, October 26-28, 2015.

This goal of this symposium on Fracture Mechanics is to highlight recent advances in experimentation, analysis, modeling and simulation related to fracture. Phenomenological as well as micromechanical modeling approaches capable of predicting complex crack pattern formation, and numerical methods such as cohesive zone models, XFEM and mesh-free methods, phase-field models, and peridynamic approaches among others are of interest. Experimental advances for the observation and quantification of crack growth and crack path selection, as well as validation of modeling/simulation approaches are also welcome. All classes of materials are of interest, from soft materials such as elastomers and gels, to ductile metals, to brittle glasses and ceramics.

Interested authors must submit an abstract through the website. Abstracts are due by June 26, 2015. Please select the mini-symposium “Fracture Mechanics” under the group “Mechanics of Fracture and Damage”
